Simplicity is key for social discovery apps

Paul Shelter, CEO of Digital Proximates Ltd., dispels the myths of app development With recent research indicating that consumers are starting to tire of traditional social networks, social discovery is widely being touted as the next big frontier for app development. Here, Paul Shelter, CEO of Digital Proximates Ltd., provides some insight into the development process and offers his top tips on building a successful social app: "Social discovery has enjoyed an astronomic rise in recent years.

GetTaxi – Some Real Competition for Uber in NYC

Does anyone really need another app to call a car service with? Yes. Did I wait too long to answer? I’ve been a loyal and evangelical Uber user for almost a year. It solves for a very specific transportation problem in NYC – you can never get a cab or car service when you really need one. So, with one tap, a quick address entry and another tap to confirm, one of two things will happen: 1) A beautiful, clean, black car will pull up in front of you within 12 minutes and take you anywhere you want to go, or 2) it won’t… but the app tells you there are no cars available within a few seconds of your request. Uber is not a complete solution. It does not, for example, let you book a car for a future time. If you need a car to take you to the airport during rush hour, it is much safer to book the car through a traditional car service. There is no guarantee that Uber will b... (more)
